Sarah Palin Not Getting Enough Media Attention?

Well, how times have changed. As Donald Trump finds himself squarely in the political news cycle, team Sarah Palin is complaining of a lack of coverage on the networks.

Slate’s Dave Weigel writes about a series of Tweets sent by Palin aide Rebecca Mansour last night, to networks including ABC, MSNBC, CNN and individuals like NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, who covered Palin’s VP run.

Mansour wondered why the networks hadn’t given more coverage to Palin’s Tea Party speech in Madison, Wisconsin last weekend.

@daveweigel my tweets are my own, and it’s ridiculous to waste five minutes on a news story about a lark last night.
